Post 54 Members Sworn-In to
Board of DuPage Veterans Assistance Commission

At the December 21st meeting of the DuPage County Veterans Assistance Commission, two members of JWV Post 54 were sworn in to the governing board.  

The VAC provides emergency financial assistance to indigent veterans and their families who reside in DuPage County.  The VAC is managed by a Board of Directors who are veterans representing the various veteran service organizations in DuPage County.

Bruce Mayor, commander of the JWV Department of Illinois, was sworn in as President of the Commission.  This is Bruce’s third term as President, though he has been on the board for six years.  Bruce assisted the VAC Superintendant, Steve Fixler, through its recent conversion to a distinct unit of DuPage government, with the ability, if it so chooses, to tax. Steve Fixler is a member of JWV Post 54.

As an alternate board member in lieu of Bruce when he is absent, Leslie Turner has served on the board for six years.  

The swearing in was held at the DuPage County Admin Building in conjunction with its holiday dinner.  In addition to the other VSO members who were sworn in, employees of the DuPage Veterans Court were in attendance as was the court’s judge, who gave the oath.
